Dr. Papanicolaou was the absolute, hands-down, best surgeon I could’ve ever asked for. Getting a lift at 18 years old is a very daunting task, and Dr. P made me feel so comfortable and safe in his hands. His bedside manner is excellent, best I’ve ever seen, and his team make you feel like family. The results from my surgery exceeded my expectations and my confidence is at an all-time-high! Dr. Papanicolaou is the perfect option for anyone who wants to look and feel great. Not only that, but the healing process was a breeze thanks to his excellent care. You will not regret choosing Dr. P.

Had an amazing experience, at the office of Dr Papnicolaou, he treated me with ultimate respect, he makes sure you understand what he's doing and listens very carefully to my concerns and the staff there is very kind and professional. I had some fillers and cannot be more happier with my results. its so natural, no drastic changes, but enough for it to erase some years off my face. I Highly recommend Dr Papnicolaou, and his staff. Thank you Dr! give Him 5 stars...

It has been over a year since my bilateral breast reconstruction. My results are better than I expected. I am a nurse and was a patient at the homecare agency where I work. My co workers were impressed with his work and commented that Dr P is an artist.

I am beyond pleased with the results of my bilateral breast reduction. First and foremost the post op pain was minimal; I am not one to have a high pain tolerance. A week later my drains were removed and I resumed my life, with precaution of course. I am now 4 weeks post op and the incisions look fabulous, my nipples are proportional and symmetrical and they didn't lose any sensation. All and all I couldn't be happier with my results. If you're looking for a perfectionist, he's your guy !

Dr. Papanicolaou was involved in doing repair of a very difficult wound on my lower front shin, a very large area not easily closed thru plastic surgery, skin graft and wound care. He has that unique blend of clinical expertise, precise clinical judgement, empathy and great interpersonal skills. He did a wonderful job resolving the wound in spite of many challenges. I could not be more impressed nor more appreciative of the care he provided me and will always be indebted to him for it.

Doctor P. is a 5 star doctor!!!! I had a basal cell lesion removed from my lower left eyelid which required a skin graft to close the wound. Doctor P. did an outstanding job of reconstructing the eyelid and lower skin area near the eyeball. This was a very delegate area near the eye and DR P. did an exceptional job.

Went in for a consult related to a somewhat embarrassing birth defect. Dr. P came in took plenty of pictures, but never called back as promised with procedure options. He should be embarrassed for himself and his staff.

Dr. P was the emergency surgeon on duty when I can into the E.R. from a horrorific accident. He rebuilt the left side of my face just from my drivers license photo. Recovery was under quality care with minimal scarring. I was blessed and I believe he was as well. I should never have survived.

I was diagnosed with skin cancer on my back and was referred to Dr. P by my surgeon. He closed my incision so my scarring on my back would be minimal. Dr P did A phenomenal job at closing the incision with minimmal scarring. We chose to a skin flap and not a skin graft and I'm so glad I listened to his advice. His staff is awesome about answering any questions you have and will make time to see you if needed. I will use Dr P in the future if ever needed again and appreciated his professionalism
